1 Hello, everyone.
3 I think all you know the utility revdep-rebuild. It's very usefull. But it
4 has
5 some nasty features, such as totally ignoreing of emerge default options
6 set in
7 /etc/make.conf
9 Would you like portage to be verbose? Ignored.
10 Do you like portage showing you what's going to be emerged? Ignored!
11 Do you wish portage to ask for your confirmation before actually doing
12 compilation?
13 Yes, IGNORED!
15 Just press ctrl-c and enjoy scrolling. Then run again. No too user
16 friendly.
17 You don't like that behaviour? Just add the desired options to command like
18 parameters. You don't like adding options explicitly? Hey, that's Gentoo,
19 just make
20 a wrapper script and be happy ;-)
22 I wrote a letter Paul Varner, reporting him about that bug. And what did
23 he answer?
24 That's a feature, not a bug. "We purposely do not honor
25 EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS because not
26 to do so will break revdep-rebuild in unexpected ways"
27 Ok. There is easy, dumb and stupid way of fixing that - just filter out
28 harmful options.
30 I suggested my help in developing the script. I asked him what options
31 will break things...
32 No answer. 12 days left.
34 I made a report in bugzilla:
35 And was suggested to make the question up here.
37 Please, leave your comments, suggestions etc.
38 Thanks for attention.
